Abstract

The Danube species Viviparus acerosus has been recorded for the first time from the Transcarpathian region of Ukraine. The material was collected in autumn 2018 on the bank of the Roman-Potik reservoir in the environs of Dunkovitsa village, Irshava district. The conchological peculiarities of the adult and embryonic specimens have been described and illustrated, and the shell sizes of the adults are given. It is possible that V. acerosus may occur in other localities of western and south-western parts of Ukraine, but has been mistaken for large specimens of the widespread species Viviparus viviparus. From the Lower Danube in the southwest of the Odessa region, V. acerosus was recorded for the first time as far back as the beginning of the 20th century. In the middle of the 20th century it might be mentioned from this territory as V. viviparus var. hungarica. The necessity for more thorough study of the species composition and distribution of representatives of the genus Viviparus in the Ukrainian part of the Danube basin is argued.
